Q: Why do I have to pay a deposit?

A: We require a deposit to ensure the security of our gear. The deposit acts as a form of insurance in case of damage, loss, or late return. Once the equipment is returned in good condition and on time, the deposit will be fully refunded to you.

Q: Where are your collection points?

A: Our collection points are strategically located in Cape Town as well as Somerset West for your convenience. You can choose the one that is most convenient for you. 

Q: Do you deliver?

A: Yes, we offer delivery services within Cape Town. Additional charges may apply based on the distance and the size of your order. Please inform us during the reservation process if you would like to have the gear delivered, and we will provide you with the necessary information and any associated costs.

Q: Do you do bulk deals?

A: Yes, we do offer bulk deals for larger groups or longer rental durations. If you have specific requirements or need gear for a larger number of people, please contact us directly, and we will be happy to discuss discounted rates or customised packages to meet your needs.

Q: How do you make sure your sleeping bags are clean?

A: We have a strict cleaning protocol in place for all our gear, including sleeping bags which all come standard with a sleeping-bag liner which is washed after each use. We prioritise maintaining cleanliness and hygiene to ensure that our customers receive clean and fresh equipment.

Q: Will the product I get exactly match what's on the site?

A: We strive to provide accurate and up-to-date product descriptions and images on our website. However, due to the nature of rentals and inventory fluctuations, there may be occasional variations in the brand or model of the equipment you receive. Rest assured, we always ensure that the quality and functionality of the gear meet or exceed the standards advertised on our site.

Q: What happens if I damage the gear?

A: Accidental damages can occur during outdoor activities. For minor damages, we typically do not charge any additional fees.
